This first quarter of the year has been a whirlwind! I am not even sure how we are already celebrating our first Spring Open House! This is our first open house event since Christmas and we were ready to celebrate the best way we knew how! From an infused sweet tea bar to free potpourri, we kicked off the Spring season with an amazing group of makers and friends that came out to show our small little shop a whole lotta of love!
Although the day started with a few clouds, it definitely did not hinder the Spring vibes we had inside! From the moment we opened our doors customers and friends poured in to show their love and support. After such dark times in our small town of Mayfield, KY it truly felt normal for a bit. That’s exactly how we want it.
I think Roost + Restore, even just in the name, has a bigger calling that just a home decor boutique. It has become a ministry to women who need to be reminded of just how special God made them as women, wives, mothers, sisters…all the hats we wear. Women pour love into their homes (their roost) each and every day. We, as home decor boutique, can exist as a reminder to the promise of the restoration of joy even when you feel like your cup is empty! And that’s what I seen at this Spring Open House event. I saw cups being filled and hearts being filled with joy, right in the middle of town flattened by disaster. And that my friend, is God’s love!
One of the things we knew we wanted to offer our customers and friends was an immersive experience from the time they walked through our doors. One of those things being a sweet tea bar! We provided an assortment of sweet and unsweet brews along with a strawberry, lemon blend to chose from.
After picking flavors, you were encouraged to infuse your tea with fresh fruits and a touch of mint to bring the flavors together for a Spring refresh.
And to make it even more special a cute rice paper flower to boot!
Guest we’re invited to also enjoy snacking on our fun charcuterie cups filled to the brim with fresh salamis, fruits, nuts, cheeses and olives! And if that isn’t enough to get you excited, check out all the fun things we had around each corner below.
Here is our list of amazing makers that we invited to pop up in store with us at Roost and Restore Home! We’d love for you to support their pages and social media accounts listed below. Be on the lookout for some of their products in store soon!
The fresh bouquets were the first thing you encountered when you entered our doors and what a beautiful greeting they truly were! Ashley, the owner is the sweetest soul I have known much of my life and when she started this side venture a couple years ago I knew she would prosper. Her personality is bright and she is a warrior for Christ!
Just look at those eyes! Would you believe me if I told you that these are drawings!!! Yes, drawings by and incredibly talented young lady named Beth. Beth and I connected through her older sister, Emily, who just so happens to be my youngest sons preschool teacher! Emily has shared some of her personal pieces of art made by Beth and I knew I wanted to feature her in the shoppe!
Beth works mostly with colored pencils and pastels and humbly states that she only started taking art classes a couple months ago. Her talent is impeccable! You can contact Beth for your own personalized drawing through her Facebook page linked above!
Katie and Kane are the owners of KM Creations! Katie and I met through similar past circumstances that immediately drew us together. Her and her new hubby, Kane are wildly talented and excited about their new venture in customs! From door hangers and name cutouts to beautiful furniture pieces and plexi glass signs, they have you covered! I love their start up story, and how they have started making and selling based off a demand of their handmade wedding decor! I am so excited about future partnerships with this new business!
Do you ever just meet those people that immediately just feel like your people? That is exactly how it felt when Carly and I met. We started talking and became fast friends. We were connected to a mutual friends who knew I was looking to add handmade jewelry to the shoppe. After scoping out her work, I knew I had to have it for my peeps! Her attention to detail and use of REAL pressed flowers make this jewelry stand out from the rest! fI am so excited to be adding a Mossy Handmade collection to the store in the very near future!
Emma, with Southern Charm Cakes was our sweet treat vendor for the day! She is known around town for her goodies and almost always sells out! She pleased the crowds with her cheesecake bites, gourmet cupcakes and my personal faves, double doozies! You can find Emma on Facebook or set up at other local shop events!
And of course I can’t go without mentioning our R+R HomeMade potpourri! We make our blends in house using fine fragrance oils. This Spring seasonal blend we call “Flower Market” for its bright floral aromas blended with beautiful dried botanicals and wooden florals!
